    Major props to those that do a GREAT job laying beats down.

    In spite of all the silly (and some funny) drummer jokes, we we would be screwed without 'em. The good ones amaze me. I'd love to be capable of what they do.

    Some of my faves off the top of my head (in no order):

    Jon Wurster (Superchunk)
    Matt Pence (Centro-matic)
    Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn & Miracle 3, Baseball Project, Minus 5)
    Tad Hutchison (Young Fresh Fellows, Chris & Tad)
    Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters)

    The most interesting performances I've seen lately are from Marco Minnemann, with Mike Keneally+Bryan Beller and Guthrie Govan+Bryan Beller.
